What's even worse is that he had his hand all over it, saying that he could fix it. I wanted to scream..Take your hands off my Stamen!

What a doofus icon_cool.gif He needs to google images of lilies and he'll see that they often curve.

Was he speaking of the thicker central structure? If so, he doesn't know his flower parts, either, becaust that's the PISTIL WITH STIGMA, anyway icon_eek.gif

I'd have told him that if he picked at my flowers, he'd be picking his own head off the floor..................

LMAO!!!! Maybe he's always thought of leaving his boring managerial job to follow his dream of helping clients perfect their stamen.

(This is the clean version of what my husband and I are throwing around right now. icon_twisted.gif ) Lol!

Oh, no! Not the dreaded pistil with a stigma! That's a horrible affliction.

I was thinking, "That one [the manager] takes the bull by the horns." but that's just how my mind goes, lololol.

Sounds like everything was going so well at the wedding that he needed to create a situation to 'handle.'
Seriously, go play with the napkins or line up the silverware, dude.
